Select DC Public Schools Open Coronavirus Vaccine Clinics for Students, Families

-

DC Public Schools (DCPS) opened COVID-19 vaccination clinics that don’t require appointments for students and families on Tuesday, June 1.

Any DC resident who is 12 years or older can receive their vaccine at Ida B. Wells Middle School, Luke C. Moore High School, Eastern High School, or Anacostia High School, according to officials.

The walk-in clinics at these schools will operate in collaboration with DC Health and Safeway Pharmacies, and only provide the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

The clinics will be administering the vaccine Monday through Saturday at varying hours for each school.

DCPS calls on all students ages 12 and older to get vaccinated against the infectiCous disease, as well as their parents, caregivers, and eligible siblings. Children younger than 17 need to have a parent or guardian sign a consent form at the vaccination clinic.

“The science is clear: vaccines are the single most effective tool we have to stop the spread of the coronavirus,” DCPS Chancellor Lewis Ferebee said about the campaign. “To help meet our commitment to fully reopen schools for every student, every day in the fall, it is our responsibility as a community to get vaccinated, including our middle school and high school students.”

DCPS currently does not require students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend school next year, but their childhood vaccinations must be up to date to participate in summer programming and to attend school in the fall.

The vaccination schedules of the four schools are as follows:

  • Ida B. Wells Middle School (405 Sheridan St NW, Washington, DC 20011):

Wednesday-Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm, and 2 pm to 7 pm.

  • Luke C. Moore High School (1001 Monroe St NE, Washington, DC 20017):

Monday-Thursday, 9 am to 1 pm, and 2 pm to 7 pm.

  • Eastern High School (1700 East Capitol St NE, Washington, DC 20002):

Monday, Thursday-Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm, and 2 pm to 7 pm.

  • Anacostia High School (1601 16th St SE, Washington, DC 20020):

Monday-Thursday, 9 am to 1 pm, and 2 pm to 7 pm.
